Jams & Jellies at Wade House

August 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until August 11, 2019

Visitors will get to experience the canning process by watching and listening to staff as they follow recipes dating back to 1858. Early to mid-August is exactly the time of year that the Wade House household staff would have been busy preserving fruits that were ripening.

Staff will use raspberries picked on the Wade House grounds to make the jam and jelly and then will seal canning jars with brandy-soaked paper rounds and five layers of tissue paper.  Interpreters will also explain the differences between jams and jellies.
